GC -

I hear you. I just find it fascinating that these are issues now. The timing of it begs the question of what is going on behind the curtain, who's pulling the strings and what master is being served.

Is the Ohio Sec State that much of an idiot that he/she wouldn't think that the timing of these software updates wouldn't fall under intense scrutiny? If the vote goes for Romney the left will howl. If the vote goes for Obama, the right will howl.

Maybe the law is specific to voting machine hardware only and doesn't apply to software and this is nothing other than what it is.

I'm an Occam's Razor kind of guy, but this one has me intrigued. I can spin theories in my head where it makes sense the both sides benefit from different outcomes. With any luck, Ohio's electoral college votes won't play into this debacle - but I think SDH is right. I don't think we are going to know who the next President is tomorrow morning.

Life will go on and we'll all be back though....

Oy....I don't think I can handle another debacle re: Florida 2000...I was going to stay up tonight at least to watch Daily Show b/c it's live at 11pm est, but I think I'm better off trying to sleep instead. I have a crazy early wake up time for work and I agree it's unlikely i'll be rewarded w/knowing who won just by staying up late.
